          For the record it's perfectly permissible (and even documented in the support section of the Oculus website) to create a Facebook account for use solely with Oculus products. You don't need to engage with any traditional Facebook platform features. You can lock down your profile with the maximum privacy settings and have no public presence at all. Then you can create a separate Oculus identity with a different name that doesn't link back to your Facebook profile in any way. If you like that's the only name and identity that anyone you engage with on the Oculus side of things will see.

          • +8 votes

            @Colonel Izzi: Only catch is that there is some chance that Facebook will take the creation of your new account as an attempt to generate a fake account and ban it; some people have even run into issues where they've submitted photo ID as proof of identity but still not had their accounts unbanned (at least for a few weeks; not sure if it just took a while or if they were never resolve).

            Still, if worst comes to worst you can always either try to return it or sell it.

          •  

            @Colonel Izzi: I don't own one but interested to.

            Would I need to enter my cc account and info into FB account (or linked to one) in order to be able to purchase games for it since the software is all digital purchases tied to the account?

            •  

              @lamb: Yes.

            • +2 votes

              @lamb: I mean technically speaking all those transactions are happening on the Oculus accounting side of things. For example if you've provided your CC details to "Oculus" for the purposes of purchasing Oculus apps those details aren't automatically added as a payment method for premium Facebook platform features.

              However Oculus isn't really a seperate entity. These days it is essentially just a brand that the hardware division of Facebook ("Facebook Technologies LLC") uses. It's a little bit like the distinction between Samsung and it's subsidiary "Samsung Electronics". If you didn't want to give your CC details to Samsung then you'd probably feel the same way about giving them to Samsung Electronics.

              But, you don't have to give your CC details to "Oculus" in order to purchase apps. You can add your Paypal account instead if you prefer.

      For now, there's a way to link it to your Oculus account which requires an older version of the Oculus APK. Once you link the Quest 2 to your Oculus account (You can get a free Oculus Developer Account), you can make all your purchases via the quest 2 itself or via the Oculus Store. That's what I have now until they end support for Oculus Accounts. "No Borscht For You" from YouTube explains it in one of his videos.

            @cute as ducks: Be careful with using any charger with any device. They are all built to different specs (quick charge, VOOC, regular etc…). They can send the wrong voltage through to your device causing issues and malfunctions. Also your device may heat up from too much resistance and potentially burst into flames.

            • +4 votes

              @equitygame: The device only draw what it needs/can handle. Only the shoddiest devices will draw more than they can handle, anything with a brand name you can plug-in to any USB and it will negotiate the fastest method of charging or if the charger isn't powerful enough then it just won't do anything.

            @cute as ducks: Are yo able to clarify regarding the god rays? I get some light scatter on dark backgrounds when there is a bright light but I thought that was normal. Is that what you mean?

            • +1 vote

              @ozb1986: God rays are indeed "normal". They are the result of the tiny ridges in the fresnel optics scattering light. Every single Quest 2 in existence will exhibit them to some degree. You should only worry if they are extremely bad. Apparently there have been some bad samples.

              •  

                @Colonel Izzi: Mine has some, especially noticeable with text or if I am looking to the sides. It's a little distracting but not super annoying.

                • +1 vote

                  @ozb1986: Sounds normal. I can say the exact same thing about Oculus Go, Rift S, Quest 1 and Quest 2. They all use the same second generation hybrid fresnel optics, manufacturing tolerances notwithstanding.

                  •  

                    @Colonel Izzi: Cheers for that, good to know mine is "normal". Can't believe how good these 3rd gen VR headsets are (Tried the OG Oculus Rift and HTC Vive) and the price.

    The wireless airlink update works really well.

  •  

    So what are the good and bad from this to the playstation unit?

    • +1 vote

      Good: wireless, better tracking (including not having to worry about everything being in the view of the ps camera at all times), big vr game library when connected (wired or wirelessly) to pc, can tighten headset enough so it doesnt move at all when moving head quickly

      Bad: less comfortable (with default straps, havent tried the elite strap or any other third party ones), lower fov

      The PSVR is quite a dated headset at this point. I own both and haven't even touched the PSVR since I bought the quest 2 close to release.

    • -1 vote

      Just adding that PSVR has some larger games available than on native Quest if you don't have a VR-capable PC to stream from.

    • +1 vote

      Psvr has very low resolution, terrible and dated controllers and is cabled.
      Quest 2 has one of the highest resolutions on the consumer market, fantastic intuitive controllers and can be standalone or wireless to a pc.

      With Oculus you have access to games from the Oculus store, but also Steam games as well as unofficial games via the SideQuest repository.

    Man I really regret buying the quest 1 after seeing the quest 2 haha…

      I might be in the same boat when the Quest 2 Pro release next year.

        There’s always new tech around the corner.

  •  

    Got one of these a couple of weeks ago, it's an amazing upgrade coming from a HTC Vive. Make sure you pick up Virtual Desktop so you can play PCVR games wirelessly.
    My first unit came with scratches on the lens but after a quick chat with Amazon support, they had a replacement sent out and it arrived the next day. Highly recommend.

      I thought airlink does the same thing as VD.

      •  

        Yeah I've heard airlink does the same, but the update hasn't come through for my device yet.

      •  

        It does mostly the same, but you have to manually add steam games to your oculus library and I've been unable to get msfs (MS not steam) to work with it correctly up to now.

      •  

        Plus it does ASW!

    •  

      Wow - how well does PCVR games work via Virtual Desktop? Very cool work around, thanks for sharing!

      • +2 votes

        Very well from what I've played.

        Elderly - I had intended on replacing my OG with this but am going to wait for the HTC announcement next week. Did the drop in FOV and 'downgrade' in tracking bother you?

        •  

          The drop in FOV is noticeable, but not a deal-breaker for me. As for the tracking, I've had a couple of oddities pop up now and then, but usually when holding one controller in front of the other ie holding a rifle. That being said, it's very similar to what happens when the OG vive loses tracking briefly. The biggest upgrades in my opinion are the clarity, wireless and the controllers. I sold my OG vive for about $650 just a few weeks ago so it was pretty much a free upgrade.

        Try airlink first before paying for virtual desktop. I find airlink to be working much better than virtual desktop for pcvr games.

        Honestly mate it's awesome, pretty much seamless! Besides having the computer to run it, your wifi speed becomes the next limiting factor.

        • +2 votes

          I use my default router that came with tpg NBN, and it works great. So unless there's more than 3 people in the household doing stuff on wifi all the time, your standard router should work just fine.

          • +1 vote

            @khaez: Heaps of people online keep talking about wifi 6 being the best experience, but I'm using an AC modem router and having no latency issues at all. The only tweak I made to my router was changing my 5ghz channel to one that wasn't congested.

            • +1 vote

              @Elderlymango: I know, same here. I don't think a wifi 6 router will give me any difference in terms of quality. Maybe latency if there's a lot of wifi users in the house. But other than that a standard AC router with 5ghz should work fine.

      •  

        Very well. HL Alyx and MSFS look and run amazingly.

        •  

          Last time I tried link (using usb) it looked quite alot worse than my rift CV1. Do you notice lag or compression artifacts like blocks everywhere?

          •  

            @Zegga: Not at all, looked pretty sharp to me. The issue you're describing could be ASW? Once I turned that off, the smearing/scrolling/waterfall effect went away.

      •  

        Very well, you don't need any fancy expensive multiple antenna router. my tpg bundle router can handle it very well.

      •  

        Very well indeed. I never use a cable except for a couple of oculus rift games that don't work wirelessly.
        I use a wifi 6 router to get 1200mbps to a room on the opposite side of the house (about 10m) and works flawlessly.

  •  

    Very tempted.
    Will it make me dizzy (and eyes sore) if I play games for an hour for example?

    •  

      It's definately something to get used to, and people react differently so hard to say in your case. Games range from gentle to intense (ie. first person shooters). Playing intense FPS games require you to slowly build your tolerance to gain your VR legs.

    •  

      beat saber, pistol or rifle shooting games : No, you might be able to play for hours.
      cockpit view game like star wars squadron : Yes, you will be dizzy in half an hour.

      • +3 votes

        That depends entirely on the person and their exposure to things that challenge your spatial situational awareness; I have something like 15-20 years of flight sim experience and for me flying in VR is perfectly fine - even playing Echo Arena / Echo Combat with full rotation enabled (which lets you roll upside down, etc with the thumb sticks) is fine for me, if a little jarring. Ironically though I still get motion sickness when reading (as a passenger) in cars (but not buses, trains, etc).

    •  

      Depends how you react to motion. I don’t feel any issues in most of the games but Rush and Roller Coaster raises my alcohol level 🤮.

      On the other hand other family members can’t bear this thing on their hear for more than 5 minutes

    I've got a HTC Vive OG and recently built a machine for a mate with this. Was originally going to go for a Index but Valve made it all too hard.

    Pros: Very well priced, resolution is great and with VD it works really well wireless for steam games (and you've also got Airlink now I think, although I haven't tried it). Tracking is decent for what it is. Controllers are decent.

    Cons: Facebook account (if you care about that), FOV is definitely a step down from the OG and I still find OLED better. Tracking with lighthouses is better.

    Note - HTC are announcing something next week. I'm really keen for an upgrade to my OG Vive (particularly for wireless and resolution) and tbh if the FOV was better on the Quest 2 I'd probably go for it. I suspect the HTC next week will be 2 or 3x the price of this, so if you're wanting to get into VR I reckon this is definitely worth it.

    On the gaming front, Alyx is a great experience and Beat sabre is a must have app.

    Anyone new to vr, and has a decent gaming rig, viveport infinity has a good selection of pcvr games. They have a 14 day free trial, and some games like "the room vr (really good game btw)" can be finished within a day, and it'll save you money from purchasing them.

        If you follow those steps and submit your request, they will send out a replacement. Much better than the original one that comes with the quest 2. I received mine 2-3 weeks after submitting the claim.

    Don’t waste your time and money on US stock. In case of any issues warranty replacements will be an issue. I’m sorting out mine from the last one month with oculus and they are still not able to generate the replacement labels for the US product in Australia.

    Last option would be to deal with Amazon but they would want me to ship this to US address.
    Hell of a dealing.

      Commenter above said "return address was Sunshine VIC" for his return? May be easier for you to deal directly with Amazon.

        Dealing with Amazon would have been the smart choice. I've had a few product returns with amazon including overseas and they've all been seamless without any out of pocket costs.

      •  

        Just had a 30+ Chat with Amazon and they accepted the return but it’s sending back to US. And I have to pay the shipping. After spending/arguing some more they agreed to refund the shipping but this will go off my pocket initially.

        Definitely not worth considering the delivery time for initial delivery and then sending back to US at n case of any issues.

        •  

          Hmm weird, I wonder why the other guy could return to a VIC address but they are making you return it to the US

  •  

    Is this for majority standing up and moving around like wii games? Or can it be used for restful play and watching movies as well?

    •  

      I use mine primarily for sitting down. There are some standing up games but I mostly play HL Alyx and MSFS, both of which are incredible experiences.

    •  

      There's quite a few good sit down games. I expect you to die is a good sit down one, racing Sims are also fun. My gf loves angry birds vr which can also be played sitting down. Watching movies in bigscreen vr is good too, have watched a few 3d movies from there.

    •  

      if you play Half Life Alyx via Quest link to the PC, you will be realised that wii is not even close to the VR.

      This comes with the spacer for glasses in the box. I don't use glasses so not sure how well they work. But they do sell prescription lens/cover that you can pop on top of the lens. Can't remember what the company is called.

          •  

            @khaez: Even with the glasses spacer it was not the best option for me to wear my glasses, i then moved to the VR cover which at the time did not support the use of the official glasses spacer, (VR cover now have a glasses spacer that fits there VR cover) i ditched wearing my glasses until my lens arrived , it made a big difference not only from a viewing perspective but also that the strain of me trying to focus without my glasses was now gone, so much more comfortable, you will need to provide lens manufactures with your distance prescription not your reading prescription
